My weekend trip to Austin comprised of 3 basic activities: eating/drinking, catching up with old friends, and visiting old haunts (not necessarily in that order). It was a wonderful feeling to be back, revisiting familiar neighborhoods, hanging out at the ol’ watering hole, and driving through the college campus where I had spent so many years in grad school. I also loved being able to pick up where I left off with old friends, recounting old stories and laughing over old jokes. You know how it is...

Also on the list of things to do that weekend was a visit to Trudy’s, one of my favorite hangout spots. Not only are the food and drinks there out-of-this-world, but the place also holds sentimental value (it’s where I first met my husband - “Aww” moment!).

Speaking of food, the hubby and I ate Tex-Mex food like it was going out of style. You just can’t find Tex-Mex food better than Austin, which is why we miss it so much while living in New York. And man, how good are the Mexican Martinis! It’s a concoction that is just foreign to any place outside of Texas. I return back with warm, fuzzy feelings from Austin. Oh, and a few varieties of hot salsas and spicy habanero cheese!
